Say 'Hello' to Our Board!

As a non-profit organization, we are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, comprised of members of the community. The board is actively involved in shaping the direction of our organization, monitoring organizational energy, showing leadership in a culture of collaboration and respect and improving the quality of our services. The board is a driving force in maintaining an intense focus on young children and families and ensuring a track record of effective implementation.

 

This group of members includes educators, quality improvement leaders, financial/business leaders, parents of vulnerable children, pediatric and family practice physicians and legal professionals.
